  • Material requirements for printing cookie dough using a fused deposition
           modeling 3D printer

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study examined the requirements for using flour-based formulations in fused deposition modeling (FDM) of cone-shaped cookie dough. By considering the requirements of fidelity, shape retention, and extrudability, the rheological and mechanical parameters, which resulted in high printability (93.88‒96.49%) and dimensional stability (96.36‒97.15%), for formulations containing soft wheat flour, granulated sugar, water, and olive oil were determined to be: storage modulus (G′) of 7165‒12,590 Pa, loss modulus (G″) of 4161‒8297 Pa, shear modulus of 6613‒12,804 Pa, yield stress (τ0) of 50.22‒72.80 Pa, phase angle of 30.28‒33.52°, apparent viscosity of 181.25‒230.20 Pa·s, and hardness of 0.65–0.91 N. When olive oil and water were replaced with butter and egg, the formulations demonstrated higher values of G′, G″, shear modulus, τ0, and hardness; a smaller phase angle; and a wider range of apparent viscosity. These results provide quantitative information for developing cookie dough formulations suitable for 3D printing by FDM.

  • Comparison of yield and metabolites according to the types of hilling
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Various hilling materials (rice hulls, pine sawdust, and perlite) were compared to produce sprout vegetables using beach silvertop (Glehnia littoralis Fr. Schm. ex Miq.). We have investigated the yield, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, antioxidant capacities (DPPH, ABTS), phenolic compounds, and volatile compounds of G. littoralis sprout vegetables. Comparing the yield and phenolic compounds according to the hilling materials, the rice hulls treatment was the most and followed by sawdust and perlite. The leaves and stems of G. littoralis sprout vegetable contain approximately 27 volatile compounds. The sawdust treatment had a pine scent even during the hilling process, and these scent components were entirely absorbed by the stem. The result suggested that sawdust treatment, like rice hulls, had a high yield and high content of beneficial compounds, but the stem of G. littoralis had a pine tree scent, reducing the inherent scent of G. littoralis.

  • Sericulture and the edible-insect industry can help humanity survive:
           insects are more than just bugs, food, or feed

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The most serious threat which humans face is rapid global climate change, as the Earth shifts rapidly into a regime less hospitable to humans. To address the crisis caused by severe global climate change, it will be necessary to modify humankind’s way of life. Because livestock production accounts for more than 14.5% of all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, it is critical to reduce the dependence of humans on protein nutrients and calories obtained from livestock. One way to do so is to use insects as food. Compared with typical livestock, farming edible insects (or “mini-livestock”) produce fewer GHG emissions, require less space and water, involve shorter life cycles, and have higher feed conversion rates. It has been recently reported that consumption of certain insects can prevent or treat human diseases. This review goes beyond entomophagy to entomotherapy and their application to the food industry.

  • Application of chitosan-ZnO nanoparticle edible coating to wild-simulated
           Korean ginseng root

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Chitosan-ZnO nanoparticle (ZnONP) edible coating was applied to extend shelf life of wild-simulated Korean ginseng root (WsKG). In antimicrobial testing of various coating solutions (0.01, 0.02, 0.03% ZnONP), Bacillus cereus (Gram-positive) and Escherichia coli (Gram-negative) were most inhibited by the 0.03% chitosan-ZnONP solution. The 0.03% chitosan-ZnONP solution was finally used for edible coating of WsKG. In SEM analysis, the coat of chitosan and ZnONP was well-formed on the surface of WsKG. In isothermal storage tests (temperature: 5–20 °C, RH: 95%), microbial limit (4.70 log CFU/g) of total aerobic bacteria for non-coated and coated WsKG were reached at 3.9 and 6.3 weeks at 5 °C, 1.9 and 4.3 weeks at 10 °C, and 1.3 and 2.0 weeks at 20 °C, respectively. Mold occurred in the non-coated sample at 4 weeks at 5 °C, but not in the coated sample during 6 weeks. Chitosan-ZnONP edible coating was very effective in preserving WsKG.

  • Effect of intermittent microwave convective drying on physicochemical
           properties of dragon fruit

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study was carried out to investigate the effect of Intermittent microwave convective drying (IMCD) on the overall quality of dried dragon fruit in terms of total phenolic content, color change, and rehydration ratio. Three levels of microwave power (200–600 W) and a temperature of 60 °C for hot air were applied alternately throughout the process with three levels of pulse ratio such as 1:10, 1:20, and 1:40, respectively. The total phenolic content of the dragon fruit slice obtained by IMCD was ranged between 5.750 and 6.575 mg GAE/g dry weight. Within the experimental range of process variables under IMCD conditions, the drying efficiency, color change, and rehydration ratio of the dried dragon fruit slices were 15.287–51.930%, 18.643–24.847, and 1.908–3.239, respectively. The Weibull model scale (α) parameter was found to vary between \(27.512\) - \(498.174\) , while the shape (β) parameter was found to vary between \(0.769-0.851\) . The Weibull model parameters were shown to decrease with increasing microwave power at constant pulse ratio. The IMCD method produced a dried dragon fruit slices with reduced color changes and higher total phenolic content and rehydration ratio values. This investigation would contribute to the development of effective drying techniques for increased food quality and product consistency in the drying of diverse fruits and vegetables.

           peel and juice extracts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In vitro antioxidant activities of premature and mature mandarin peel and juice extracts were investigated for their potentials as functional food materials. Total phenolic and flavonoid content of premature and mature mandarin peel and juice was in the range of 31.20 to 94.04 mg gallic acid equivalent (GAE)/g and 0.09 to 43.99 mg quercetin equivalent (QE)/g, respectively. Among flavanone compounds, hesperidin and narirutin were identified as 76.81 and 51.35 mg/g, respectively, in the premature mandarin peel extract. Mandarin peel extracts were mostly high in in vitro antioxidant activities compared to mandarin juices. Hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities (81.52–93.24%) of the premature mandarin peel extract were higher than DPPH and ABTS+ radical scavenging activities (24.03–30.39%). These results confirmed that the potential of premature mandarin peels as a natural antioxidant source for functional foods.

  • Shinorine and porphyra-334 isolated from laver (Porphyra dentata) inhibit
           adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 cells

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) such as shinorine and porphyra-334 from Porphyra spp. are bioactive compounds with strong photoprotective and antioxidant properties. In this study, the anti-adipogenic effect of shinorine and porphyra-334 was examined in vitro utilizing 3T3-L1 preadipocytes. Shinorine and porphyra-334 were extracted from laver (Porphyra dentata) 50% methanolic (MeOH) extract of and their structures were elucidated by MS and NMR spectroscopy. Both compounds had no cytotoxic effect in 3T3-L1 cells (< 200 μg/mL) and inhibited the accumulation of lipid droplets in 3T3-L1 mature adipocytes in a dose-dependent manner (0.1 and 1.0 μM). Interestingly, both compounds had also significantly reduced the expression of adipogenic-related genes such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ2 (PPARγ2), CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein α (C/EBPα), adiponectin, and leptin in 3T3-L1 cells. The findings suggest that shinorine and porphyra-334 have the potential to inhibit adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A mixed natural preservative composed of ε-polylysine (ε-PL), chestnut 70% ethanol extract (NE), and cinnamon hydrothermal extract (CW), was investigated for the reduction of Staphylococcus aureus. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bacterial concentration (MBC) of seven natural extracts were investigated against a cocktail of three strains of S. aureus (ATCC 25923, ATCC 33591, and ATCC 33594). Three important factors (ε-PL, NE, and CW) were selected by using the Plackett–Burman (PB) design for the response surface model (P < 0.001). Following a central composite design, S. aureus were treated with mixtures of natural preservatives that included ε-PL, NE, and CW. The MIC and MBC of ε-PL and the natural extracts and ranged from 1 to 16 mg/mL (R2 = 0.9857). The mixed natural preservative presented a synergistic antibacterial effect, at the optimum point. These results suggest that mixed natural preservatives of ε-PL, NE, and CW can lower the economic cost of food processing.

  • Antibacterial activity of antimicrobial peptide gcDefb1 against foodborne
           pathogenic bacteria and its application in pork storage

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Pork and its products are preferably contaminated by bacteria; thus, it is essential to develop low-cost, high-efficiency and biologically safe preservatives to prevent the growth of bacteria during storage. In the current study, grass carp β-defensin 1 (gcDefb1) was produced and purified from Pichia pastoris through the heterologous expression method. The in vitro antimicrobial assay demonstrated that yeast-derived gcDefb1 possesses a broad antibacterial spectrum, including both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria, and the MIC values against Escherichia coli ATCC 25,922 were as low as 30 μg/mL and showed no cytotoxicity or hemolytic activity. The bactericidal rate of gcDefb1 was less than 60 min by disrupting the cell membranes, and it inhibited the formation of bacterial biofilms. Moreover, gcDefb1 was used as a biopreservative for pork storage, indicating that the physicochemical and sensory qualities were improved. This study provides an efficient method to prepare and utilize gcDefb1 as a novel biopreservative.

  • Effects of enzyme treatment on volatile and non-volatile compounds in
           dried green tea leaves

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Green tea contains polyphenols, mainly four catechins, including (−)-epigallocatechin gallate, (−)-epicatechin gallate, (−)-epigallocatechin, and (−)-epicatechin. Enzyme tannase is known to hydrolyze gallated catechins into non-gallated catechins and gallic acid (GA). In this study, dried green tea leaves were treated with tannase to determine changes of volatile and non-volatile compounds by the hydrolysis. The results indicated that (−)-epigallocatechin, (−)-epicatechin, and GA increased, while (−)-epigallocatechin gallate and (−)-epicatechin gallate decreased after the treatment. The GA level increased in the treated samples, which increased titratable acidity significantly, while the pH became lower. Furthermore, the antioxidant activity of the tannase-treated tea leaves increased. The level of glycosidically bound aromas decreased with the concomitant increase of corresponding volatile compounds, while some alcohols derived from fatty acids decreased significantly after the treatment. These results suggest that tannase-treatment influences both volatile and non-volatile compounds in dried green tea leaves.

           controlled release

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The effects of concentration, temperature, and time on infusion of fluorescein into corn and waxy rice starches and their controlled release pattern were investigated. At low fluorescein concentration (1 μM), temperature significantly affected infusion efficiency. At high fluorescein concentration (50–150 μM), temperature showed little effect; fluorescein concentration significantly affected infusion efficiency. Corn starch showed relatively higher infusion efficiency than waxy rice starch at high concentration. During controlled release, 50% and 81% of infused fluorescein were released from corn and waxy rice starches, respectively, after bacterial α-amylase treatment. However, 61% and 68% of infused fluorescein were released from corn and waxy rice starches, respectively, after pancreatic α-amylase treatment. The dextrose equivalent (DE) value revealed similar patterns, suggesting that degradation of starch by different α-amylases is a major factor affecting release of fluorescein from starch granules. Moreover, granule size of starch greatly affected enzymatic hydrolysis and controlled release in this system.

      Abstract: Abstract Buckwheat germinated on days of 3, 5, and 7 was digested in vitro, and the antioxidant and anti-obesity effects of the digesta were evaluated. In vitro digesta of 5 days germinated buckwheat (GBD5) showed significantly higher antioxidant activity in DPPH, ABTS, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, and ferric reducing antioxidant power by 5.3, 1.3, 2.0, 3.2, and 2.8-fold, respectively than in vitro digesta of non-germinated buckwheat. GBD5 exerted inhibitory effect on total lipid accumulation in 3T3-L1 adipocyte in a dose-dependent manner, with over 25% reduction at 400 µg/mL. Additionally, GBD5 significantly downregulated genes related to adipocyte differentiation and fat accumulation. GBD5 possessed different metabolite profiles compared to others such as higher content of γ-aminobutyric acid and succinic acid. Therefore, GBD5 has potent antioxidant effects and suppresses fat accumulation-related genes and proteins expression, which could act as a new functional substance.

           diabetes mellitus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2 is amongst the most common chronic diseases, being responsible for various problems in humans and contributing to increased mortality rates worldwide. Fructooligosaccharide, which can be produced from the roots of burdock (Arctium lappa L.), has been shown to have a wide range of pharmacological proprieties, including antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hypolipidemic, and antidiabetic effects. Moreover, burdock also contains chlorogenic acid, which has been used in traditional medicine as an antioxidant. Considering its natural origin and minimal toxicity, burdock fructooligosaccharides (BFO) has gained considerable attention from researchers owing its wide, efficient, and beneficial action against DM. Although the effectiveness of fructooligosaccharide and chlorogenic acid has been extensively discussed, limited information is available on the application of burdock for DM treatment. In this review, we discuss the beneficial contributions, and the recent in vitro and in vivo analytical findings on A. lappa extract as DM therapy.

      Abstract: Abstract Soy hull pectic polysaccharide (SHPP) is a kind of biological macromolecule prepared from soy hull, which has certain thickening and gel properties. In present study, SHPP was extracted with citric acid and sodium citrate from soybean hulls under the assistance of microwave, respectively. SHPPs were then compared with commercial pectin polysaccharide to test their emulsification ability. The emulsion prepared from SHPP extracted with sodium citrate has the best emulsifying effect, small particle size and uniform distribution. The rheological properties and particle size distribution of mayonnaise did not change significantly after the addition of different SHPPs and commercial pectin polysaccharides. However, microscopic observations revealed that the droplets were more uniformly distributed in the mayonnaise after the addition of SHPP extracted with sodium citrate under the assistance of microwave and commercial pectin APC141. SHPP extracted with sodium citrate may play an important role in maintaining emulsion stability in the future.

  • Changes in the physicochemical properties and in vitro protein
           digestibility of peanut hulls treated via mechanical activation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this study, peanut hulls powder (PHP) was treated via mechanical activation (MA) and divided into three groups (control, PHP150 and PHP250). Physicochemical properties including mean particle size distribution (MPSD), powder properties, solubility and in vitro protein digestibility of PHP were then investigated. The results showed that MA could decrease the particle size of PHP by destroying its crystal structure, resulting in an increase of amorphization and a decrease of crystallinity and crystalline size. The results of in vitro protein digestibility and crude fiber contents showed that MA increased the protein digestibility of PHP by 43.32% and 74.70% (P < 0.05), while crude fiber content was decreased by 0.42% and 26.65% (P < 0.05). These findings indicated a large application potential of MA in PHP treatment.

  • Recombinant human β-defensin130 inhibited the growth of foodborne
           bacteria through membrane disruption and exerted anti-inflammatory
           activity

      Abstract: Abstract Foodborne pathogens causing food poisoning and infections are detrimental to human health, and the abuse of antibiotics induced severe antibiotic resistance in past decades. Thus, it is urgent to develop new antimicrobial agents. In the current study, human β-defensin 130 (hBD130), which is an antimicrobial peptide identified in human macrophages in 2017, was initially produced in Pichia pastoris. The purified hBD130 demonstrated broad bactericidal spectrum against foodborne pathogens through a membrane disruption, with concentrations ranging from 10 to 45 μg/mL. Moreover, hBD130 showed a low hemolytic effect and nearly no cytotoxicity to mammalian cells with a dosage of 400 μg/mL. In addition, the secretion amounts and mRNA levels of NO, IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α in LPS-induced mouse macrophage were significantly decreased with 1 mg/mL of hBD130. Taken together, these results showed that hBD130 is a promising antimicrobial agent to treat foodborne bacterial infections and inflammation.

  • Functional foods with antiviral activity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Viruses are known to cause a variety of diseases, ranging from mild respiratory diseases, such as the common cold, to fatal illnesses. Although the development of vaccines and targeted drugs have significantly improved the mortality rate and disease severity against a number of viral infections, there are still many viruses without proper treatment/prevention options and newly emerging viruses can pose serious health threats. For instance, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is producing significant healthcare and socio-economic burden worldwide, which may jeopardize the lives and livelihoods for years to come. Studies have identified functional foods with antiviral activity. Certain foods may target the viral life cycle or modulate the host immune system to enhance defense against viral infections. In this review, we will discuss some of the food products reported to display protective effects against viruses including the influenza virus, human immunodeficiency virus, and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

  • By-product of Korean liquor fermented by Saccharomyces cerevisiae exhibits
           skin whitening activity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Herein, the skin whitening effect of the fermentation residue of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. The fermentation residue showed radical scavenging activity and attenuated tyrosinase activity. Furthermore, the fermentation residue of S. cerevisiae significantly suppressed melanin generation in B16F10 cells. Interestingly, the sample-containing formulation exhibited increased skin whitening activity compared with that by the control formulation in a clinical study. Notably, the endogenous tyrosinase expression was not altered by the fermentation residue of S. cerevisiae; however, the enzymatic activity of tyrosinase was inhibited. Furthermore, the sample did not change TRP1 and TRP2 expression in B16F10 cells. Thus, the fermentation residue of S. cerevisiae was assumed to directly suppress the tyrosinase enzyme. It was confirmed that the fermentation residue of S. cerevisiae was a competitive inhibitor of tyrosinase. Taken together, the fermentation residue of S. cerevisiae could be a novel skin whitening agent originating from the traditional Korean liquor production process.

  • Current perspectives on the beneficial effects of soybean isoflavones and
           their metabolites on plants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Soybeans have traditionally been a staple part of the human diet being highly rich in protein and lipid content. In an addition to the high nutritional components, soybeans have several functional components, like isoflavones, saponins, lecithin, and oligosaccharides. Soybeans emerge as a healthy functional food option. Isoflavones are most notable functional component of soybeans, exhibiting antioxidant activity while preventing plant-related diseases (e.g., antimicrobial and antiherbivore activities) and having positive effects on the life quality of plants. Isoflavones are thus sometimes referred to as phytochemicals. The latest research trends evince substantial interest in the biological efficacy of isoflavones in the human body as well as in plants and their related mechanisms. However, there is little information on the relationship between isoflavones and plants than beneficial human effects. This review discusses what is known about the physiological communication (transport and secretion) between isoflavones and plants, especially in soybeans.

  • Effect of galactomannan addition on rheological, physicochemical, and
           microbial properties of cultured sour cream

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Sour cream is a popular fermented dairy product and galactomannans are widely used in the food industry to improve texture and stability. In this study, it was investigated the effects of different galactomannans (guar gum (GG), locust bean gum (LBG), and GG/LBG) on the rheological, physicochemical, and microbial properties of sour creams. All the sour cream samples had similar pHs (4.55–4.57), acidity (0.83–0.86%), and lactic acid bacteria viable counts (8.08–8.15 log CFU/g) after fermentation. The rheological parameters (ηa,50, K, G′, G″, and tan δ) of the sour creams increased after the addition of galactomannans. The sour cream with GG showed higher ηa,50, K, G′, and G″ values than the sour cream with LBG. Furthermore, the combination of galactomannans (GG/LBG) did not have any synergistic effect on the sour cream. The water-holding capacity of sour creams was enhanced by the addition of galactomannans, resulting in reduced syneresis.
